Dr. Divna Valerieva Manolova

Research Associate

Research interests

Divna’s research deals with Byzantine intellectual history and, in particular, with the history of Byzantine science and philosophy. She has worked on the interaction between philosophy/science and rhetoric in medieval epistolography, on education in Byzantium, and most recently, she has embarked on the history of emotions and on the cognitive function of cosmological diagrams in medieval Greek manuscripts. In addition, Divna is currently conducting a series of interviews with members of the Byzantine Studies community entitled Revealing the Voices Behind the Cover, thus working to create an oral history of the field.
